    How do I cash in my pension? 22nd Aug 10 at 2:18 PM
    Hi - great site.

    I used to contribute to a pension with a former employer but left several years ago. The money is still just sitting there doing nothing and I occasionally get a statement from Norwich Union telling me what the level of savings is.

    Money has been tight this year and I deserve a holiday! There's only a couple of thousand pounds in this fund which is likely to only provide a pension of a few hundred pounds so I'd rather just take the cash. Does anyone here know how I go about this as I find pensions too complicated!
